Description

Outstanding HD footage of the Juno mission to Jupiter, launched in 2011 and scheduled for a 2017 encounter, is remixed with the CC-licensed bed track "Long Exposure" courtesy of Leggysalad at www.leggysalad.com The Juno probe is now looping through the inner solar system for a "gravity slingshot" boost before its voyage to the gas giant, and will engage a polar orbit for unprecedented observation of Jupiter's cloud tops and polar aurorae. Key questions to explore during the encounter include the composition of the planet's interior, which is thought to be liquid metallic hydrogen. During its mission, the craft will repeatedly orbit only a few thousand miles from the cloud tops. One theory about Jupiter's history is that it's actually a "failed star" that didn't generate enough critical mass to ignite; a belief popularized by science fiction author Arthur C. Clarke in his novel "2010". Special thanks to Kevin Mitsunaga (aka Leggysalad) for sharing his wonderfully well-crafted catalog of Intelligent Dance Music (IDM).
